Yaaas! I wanna share this:


I debated writing out this section in 3rd person but quickly decided that is for psychopaths, narcissists and for use only when I am proving a point.

So, I’m Gathoni. Hi! I am many things but on this site I am just trying to figure out how can I make my shilling go that much further. I’m a newly wed and will be a first time mum by the end of the year. Clearly, I have a lot to figure out. This site is a place for me to help you figure out how you can make your budget look bigger than it is, how to run your house even though you might be a little lazy like me and not to take things too seriously because we’re all navigating this mess together!

I hope you will find something valuable that you can share with a friend. More importantly, I hope you can share something with me because I am always looking to learn from other women. I’m smart enough to know that a lot of you out there have been working at this for a lot longer than I have and I hope we can build a community around each other. If you ever have something you want to share or maybe you just need a good vent, drop me an email at gathoni@thevaluemama.com. I promise I read everything.


Gathoni xx
